Harlem and brooklyn looking like maine
I wonder if black dudes from those gentrified areas be smashing/dating those hipsters?
slowly but surely newark is next. Already seen a bunch of cafes open in downtown with some beastie boys looking ass dudes hang out at
Harlem surprised me the most cause I actually saw it happen slowly. I wonder how it's gonna look in 10 years.
Hipsters love the trains and proximity to Manhattan, I'm in that area where the nearest train is miles away. Plus, they won't come past Kingston on the 4/5 or even approach Broadway Junction.
I'm good for now.
Where the blacks going if the rents too high?
Paterson, Camden, ENY, Brownsville, the BX, Central Islip
I have mixed feelings about it. I was in Harlem not too long ago... if I was staying in NYC I would move up here in a heartbeat, I really like it up there.
These places too but I know a lot moving down south.
I was in NYC on vacation last week. Hipsters were walking through Harlem proudly and riding bikes through Bedstuy.
i remember driving through harlem late at night last summer and we saw this one white chick walking by herself with mad black dudes just hanging out on the corner sitting on lawn chairs. She just gave them the look and kept it moving. I was shocked just seeing this lonesome snowbunny walking the block like she owned it. And u can tell she's a transplant from manhattan or somewhere and didnt grow up on that block.
It's happening in east London as well, I Moved out cos it was a shythole, now all the scum are moving out Of London, I might move back.
I moved out of Harlem in '08 - haven't been back since. I could only imagine how the populous-shift looks like now.
I've been living in Prospect Heights since I was a 4-year-old.
at the transformation.
at coffeshops on Franklyn Avenue
Its a damm shame. I cant even afford to go back and live in my hometown after college
would you rather live among a bunch of poor violent negroes (no 'cism) or elitist, hipster CACs? If you want to be safe, we all know the answer. Yeah, I'd rather Harlem be gentrified by nice professional black people, but there aren't enough of us to do that.
